I only posted on one of those threads and haven't had the time to read them all as well as other areas of more concern to me but from what I've seen of them they can get heated. Then there's the WOD threads, the libertarian threads, the anti-neocon threads, the war threads - it all is healthy in one way - hashing out the differences but some people fanatically police this site searching out dissenters on their pet cause and attack, attack, attack. This runs from juvenile to down right mean to deliberate disinformation. Not sure what motivates this type but they are impervious to reason and exhibit the same mentality as commissars. A perfect fit for a totalitarian state but dangerous to a free society.
Nice thing about the libertarian approach to governing is that when the government is not involved there is a lot less for people to be at odds over. The commissars will be reduced to harmless local cranks. Free State Project bump!
